John in Florham Pk. Yes, I found out about FUV's dastardly deed here on the comments board, was living out of this area when that occurred. And some of their DJs affect an odd vocalization that is cloying or "farm league"-commercial.

Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 3/9/19 7:45am randyfrommichigan:

@John I didn't move to the Detroit area til 1991 ... by then CKLW wasn't Top 40 anymore. But I lived in Sarnia Ontario from '81 to '91, it's about 60 miles from Detroit/Windsor and I listened CKLW sometimes then, it was a great station! I have a DVD documentary about CKLW The Big 800, it's excellent. Have you listened to it?

What, do you mean the other radio stations besides WFMU?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 3/9/19 8:14am randyfrommichigan:

WBEN-FM aired a mixture of live and automated music, mostly easy listening and block music programming, such as organ music. As FM listening grew, the station became "Rock 102" in 1973, using the syndicated TM "Stereo Rock" automated contemporary hits format and dropping the morning show simulcast with WBEN. This same TM format and its prerecorded announcer were heard on other stations in Upstate New York during this perio

Always a bit odd to talk about other radio stations at WFMU, especially during a marathon. But I think we all know things are relative. And WFMU is relatively closer to utopia.

@Linda I posted about a Buffalo NY radio station I used to listen to growing up in Toronto ... @dale refreshed my memory on the name - Rock 102 ... I later learned there was a chain of them thru NY state ... like clones ... it kinda freaked me out back then that Rock 102 wasn't one of a kind

i personally need very little music-wise aside of fmu ~ live & streaming. sometimes i need aural Sominex from ambient radio, but otherwise i'm set. fmu is it. to hell with spotify too.

Bob Fass at NYC's WBAI-FM was one of the first "free form" DJs in the late '60s. He influenced Vin Scelsa of WFMU in '67. The rest is free form history. And things are even better today as we have decades more music to choose from! Thanks again Jeffrey & Jeff!

@linda what is really sad is hearing a guns and roses song playing in a supermarket when I lived in Florida so yeah I know what you mean
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sat. 3/9/19 8:23am Ciggy:

Working as a stock boy at John Wanamaker's, I would listen to WNEW-FM and Jonathan Schwartz was ending his career at NEW, so he gave a clue as who his successor would be. He said his successor has the initials of a Yankee starting pitcher. The answer was Doc Ellis (Who later admitted to pitching a game while tripping on LSD). So, Doc Ellis = Dennis Elsas.
